ABSTRACT. The Canadian waters of the Great Lakes basin sustain 90% of Ontario’s population and account for 40% of Canada’s economic activity.   The integrity and resource use of the Great Lakes have been impacted by a long history of aquatic invasive species (AIS), and the threat of future invasive species impacts remain.  By teaming together, and combining efforts of multiple levels of government and non-profit organizations, we have the ability to coordinate efforts to meet the significant challenges of protecting the large and varied aquatic landscape.  This presentation will discuss the issues faced, how a multi-group approach is conducted, and present examples of successes in meeting challenges.
